How will you spend MLK Day? Will it be a day of service? Will you read a favorite passage or attend a breakfast celebration honoring Dr. King's contributions? We are looking forward to our MLK Legacy community Celebration at Wheaton! We hope you can join us!
Join us for Diversity Day tomorrow! Students created this great video about the importance of talking and listening together! That's what this day is about -

We are having civil rights crisis. We cannot wait anymore. #MLKLegacy @adamjohnfoss

The Marshall Center exists to affirm unique identities, to build a community that draws from them and to cultivate leaders who will introduce to the world the value of human diversity.

Great story!

This is a great example of what it means to be able to bring your whole-self into your academic environment. Culturally inclusive practices in every space matters. Honoring the traditions & the many ways of knowing & being matters.
